kicks off month-long election campaign
Issued: 26 June 2003
The sight of Cambodian politicians rallying around Phnom Penh and other venues across the country to canvass support will be familiar until the electoral day. On the up-coming election, there are three first-lined parties on which worth catching eyes. The first one is ruling party led by Hun Sen who is aware of his two crucial components; one is the Royalist Funcinpec Party, now a coalition partner, the other is the opposition Sam Rainsy Party.
Prince Norodom Ranariddh addressed more than 12,000 Funcinpec supporters in Kompong Cham province. While Sam Rainsy drew about 3,000 in front of the country's National Assembly Thursday morning. On part of ruling Cambodian People's Party gathered more than 10,000 people at its headquarters. Prime Minister Hun Sen predicted then the victory.
Most observers also agree the ruling party will be re-elected, and probably, win a majority government. And most also hope there will be no violence to rot this election again.
